Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • You can get a three chapter preview of Star Wars: Bloodlines by Claudia Gray via Instafreebie. It’s officially endorsed by Del Rey, but they do want you to sign up for something called Playcrafting, so expect spam.
  • Speaking of Bloodlines, upcoming Star Wars director Rian Johnson had some input on the novel. Jen Heddle talk about that and the other important reasons why you should check out Bloodlines over on StarWars.com.
  • Timothy Zahn‘s next book now has a cover and title – StarCraft: Evolution. Release date is September 15 for the 208 page hardcover.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 94 covers news, their thoughts on the Rogue One trailer which is kind of funny since they do it from an Imperial viewpoint, troop reports including a visit to the White House, upcoming events and more.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 010 goes back to Legends as they talk about EU books that are still worth reading, touching on different eras, and their favorites. Excellent episode for fans who want to get an idea of which books they should try out. They even touch on some of their favorite canon comics and novels.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 011 discusses lightsabers. From the light side to the dark side, their favorites, the colors, creating them and more. Nice discussion.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 012 goes over The Force Awakens Blu-ray special features and how low it compares to other special features. I have to agree, the special features for TFA were nothing to gloat about and were pretty disappointing. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
